Manchester United fans have taken to social media to vent their frustration over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to leave Jadon Sancho on the bench against Southampton.
The former Borussia Dortmund winger came off the bench for the 5-1 victory over Leeds United last weekend and also came off the bench in the 1-1 draw against Southampton.
A fan tweeted: “I love Ole but I do wish he’d just throw new signings in the deep end. Varane and Sancho have played big games. They can figure it out without easing them in. I’m certain a rusty Varane is better than Lindelof.”
Another added: “I can understand Raphael Varane not starting because he’s had no competitive minutes since the 28th of June but I cannot see any reason why Jadon Sancho wouldn’t waltz into the starting lineup.”
Another fan tweeted: “Why on Gods green earth are Varane and Sancho on the bench?’ and ‘Can anyone explain why Sancho isn’t starting? Makes no sense to me.”
A fourth fan tweeted: “Can anyone explain why Sancho isn’t starting? Makes no sense to me.”
Should Solskjaer have started Sancho against Southampton?
